  • SMS2130 is the new product launched in the upcoming Latin American cell phone TV market by Siano Mobile Silicon, the much talked about cell phone TV receiver chip maker. The chip supports the ISDB-T technology, this technology is also known as ISDB-T “1-Seg.”



    The chip suits the exact needs of the of the market of that region as it introduces new optimization levels in cost and performance


    Though the SMS2130 will initially launch in Brazil, but soon it will be available in the other Latin American countries including Chile and Argentina.


    Until now nearly 40 cities in Brazil enjoy mobile TV, which covers a population of 70 million or more. Currently the services are available free of cost. There are plans of introducing more advance interactive services from 2011.



    Availability wise… a few customers are already enabled to get sample chips and Siano stated that they are already engaged in developing electronic products with some of their customers. They are making electronic products including cell phones using the new chip, SMS2130.


    It is worth mentioning that SMS2130 is the first of its kind in a totally new product family for the Latin American market. Though Latin America is an unpredictable place with an even more unpredictable market, if Siano can sell their product well it should result in them making a huge profit. Siano-based products have been selling in high volumes in Brazil for a few months now under the leading cell phone operators such as Vivo, Claro and TIM so it can be presumed that their new brand will also prosper. But we have to wait to find out how the story unfolds.

  • Vlingo, the maker of a popular Voice command application for a number of cell phone platforms, responded to the launch of Google’s Voice Actions application, this was done by offering Vlingo’s Android application free of cost. Vlingo stated in its blog that its Voice command application is better than the Google version in many respect and also offers similar functionality. In order to compete with the application by Google, Vlingo has now started to offer the Android version free of cost so that it is easier for the user to compare the features of the products.


    Vlingo states that their product has advantages over the one from Google. Vlingo hints, Google has a constraint because it has to promote its services and other content while being a separate developer, Vlingo can take the best of Google and the other services and mix them up.



    Vlingo’s Voice command application does provide some features that that cannot be found in Google’s Voice Actions. These features include Safe Reader, this application reads incoming email messages and texts. Vlingo is available on many platforms like Unlocked Blackberry phone and the iPhone and also on more than one version of Android. Though Google’s voice actions may be attractive for Android, the only Android version in which it is available is 2.2.


    So… a few questions appear before us. Will Android users choose Vlingo over voice actions now that Vlingo is available free of cost? How will everybody take Vlingo’s move to offer such a huge discount and make its app free? It does speak a lot when a company actually tries to compete rather than bad mouth its opponent.

  • San Francisco is the city where most of the people have the Apple’s unlocked iPhone4. But now it is becoming challenging for the aesthetics based cellular antennas mainly because of the new proposal which is placed at the Planning Commission.


    S.F. Examiner stated that the newly proposed rules and regulations will ban the utility poles which are new and used only for antennas. According to the rules and regulations, you can install mini antennas but cell phone manufacturers will have to get permission before they fix any equipment on public property.


    San Francisco already has many complaints regarding the network coverage of the Apple iPhone and it seems that this proposal won’t help much to improve it! Though AT&T, who sees after the network coverage, did whatever they could to provide a better coverage but the government in San Francisco didn’t give an approval.


    We don’t want San Francisco to lose its beauty due to the wild run of the cell phone manufacturers. But there must be a solution to solve the coverage problem without destroying the beauty of the city. It is so easy to make a statement that AT&T is not doing anything which they must do to improve the Apple iPhone coverage. But boy who said they haven’t done anything yet? It would be better to recommend a solution rather than criticizing them with all your energy.


    If you do want a better technology for your Apple iPhone4 unlocked handset then do give a call to your local agent and ask him to install new towers and for that you need to get some time out of your busy schedule.


    To get rid of the problem, you’ll have to be active. Show your responsibility, stop being lazy, pay heed to the complicated situation where you are in and bring out a solution.

  • Dr. Ataken Peker, the founder of Liquidmetal Technologies said that in the making and design of Apple’s new wireless antennas Liquidmetal’s shapeless metal alloys might be used. Dr. Ataken Peker pointed out at an interview which was held by Cult of Mac, that the properties which Liquidmetal hold, makes it a very useful material for an antenna. This can be a reason behind Apple’s signing of a broad licensing agreement with the company.


    Commonly illustrated as metallic glass, the different alloys that go into the making Liquidmetal provides great strength at minimum weights, utmost durability or wear resistance, and the softening temperature being low, it is easier to mould it into designs and shapes that are complex in nature. Liquidmetal is already being used in various consumer products such as sports equipments especially skis, golf clubs etc. jewellery, and also in electronic equipments where it appears in USB thumb drive casings, MP3 players, and cell phones. The wireless modem, Verizon USB727, which is famous for its excellent reception capability uses Liquidmetal technology in its antenna. Moreover, Apple also uses the same technology in the newly launched Magic Trackpad.



    Apple may not be eyeing for Liquidmetal to be solely used in the making of the simple antenna, it may as well be used in the seamless, complex casings of products such as iPod, unlocked  iPhone4 and the iPad. Moreover this technology can also be used to make novel casings that receive radio signals. The Bezel Antenna that is used in iPhone 4 can be replaced by an outer casing that receives signals thus making the whole casing itself an antenna. Liquidmetal has properties that allow it to be bended without fatigue or erosion of any sort so it can also be used to make one piece foldable devices too.

  • The question that features the most on almost everyone’s lips is incredibly a simple “Where Are You?” Despite the fact that in many cases the answer to that would be a simple one, there are several situations where you may not know how to describe a perfectly new location to your friend. Many a times, sending detailed information about where you are to a bunch of people who ask you that question around the same time can be irritating even. It has been ages and we’ve hardly paid any heed to this irritating exercise of dissipating your whereabouts up until recently where the geo-positioning cellphone application, echoecho was conceived. This wonderful application automatically lets people know where you are using the in-built geo positioning feature in your cell  phone.



    This wonderful application has had several updates since its release in the mobile software market. The app has now released version 1.7 recently and one new feature has caught the eye tremendously. The release features an auto reply option in itself. This feature works on the simple idea that when people request for the location of a person using this application, a request will be sent to the corresponding entity’s mobile phone. The application will now check the settings that the consumer has put into the application and instead of asking for permission will send details of the person’s location using the information that the user must pre-set about which of their address book contacts should be allowed to draw information from their phone about their location.


    This feature is switched OFF by default. However, it is an immensely useful app and can be very advantageous for users. The only problem is the lack of publicity for this software. If this issue about spreading the word on this application is resolved, this wonderfully conceived application has the potential to set the phone apps market abuzz. Until then we look forward to enjoy more releases with more impressive features from echoecho.

  • Fotopedia Heritage, the new app for iPad and iPhone users, now offers access to over a few thousand works by photographers who are a part of the Fotopedia community bringing together more than 20.000 photos locating close to 3.000 places of interest throughout World Heritage locations. Fotopedia is now officially a collaborative encyclopedia of photographs from all over the world. Fotopedia Heritage was developed by a team headed by Jean-Marie Hullot, who is the former CTO of American computer company NeXT and has been a part of Apple's application release division.


    According to Fotopedia, as this incredible app was coded, the entire Fotopedia community placed and screened the photos carefully in order to ensure a high level of relevance and immaculate quality. Fotopedia CEO Jean-Marie Hullot also says that their much awaited application has now reinvent the whole coffee table photo-book experience as the app merges the whole concept of a limitless number of photos with equally vast and needless to say, relevant information.


    Fotopedia Heritage allows iOS platform device owners to navigate through content easily, with the help of tags, and at the same time learn about every place they search for by going through rich descriptions provided by UNESCO and complemented by Wikipedia.


    Initial test on the unlocked iPhone4 confirm this app is bug free despite the small glitch that displays information on this app on a small part of the iPhone screen. However this app was intended to be more appropriately for the iPad in the first place. Users also have the added benefit of a proper and interactive map service on this very map. TripAdvisor has provided travel information for all the World Heritage Location anyone may find interest in, for a trip.


    The only issue with this app is that it requires either iOS 3.1.3 or a later version to function fully. Otherwise it is compatible with all iOS devices.

  • The Unlocked iPhone4 exclusively was marketed by AT&T for time immemorial(a little over three years in the mobile world) in US, but that is short lived, in the wake of the rumor of a iPhone launch by Verizon  in few years. If/When the Verizon iPhone is really launched; Big Red can cause a big setback to AT&T by help of their self proclaimed superior wireless network. A new study reveals that a large part of the existing users of iPhone on AT&T are keen on replacing them with an alternative Apple Smartphone carrier.



    The numbers, though not that surprising, are very significant. According to the study from Morpace, 1 out of 3 AT&T iPhone users are considering changing loyalties to handsets on another carrier. A solid 34% want to jump ship, and 47% of the current users are ready to consider a Verizon alternative of their handset of choice. This is not at all good for the carriers’ bottom line when Apple will start reaching out for its iOS-powered Smartphone to the various other carrier partners.


    The survey also categorizes the customer intent by carrier.20% of T-Mobile customers are “somewhat” or “very likely” to opt for an Apple Smartphone on Verizon. The same thing applies for 22% and 23% customers of Sprint and AT&T respectively. But surprisingly, 51% of Verizon customers are waiting for a handset powered by iOS which is certainly the icing on the cake.



    Even more fascinating is the possible impact an iPhone on Verizon will have on the other Smart phones offered by Big Red. At present, the majority of most compelling Android Smart phones are claimed by Verizon in US. A lot of their resources are invested into marketing Android phones like Unlocked Motorola Droid X and Motorola Droid 2. Considering the arch rivalry between Android and iOS in the mobile space, it is worth wondering how newcomer Apple will overcome Android, especially if it is more powerful than AT&T’s iPhone 4.

  • The Simon Property Group, that current owns more than 350 malls in the United States of America has teamed up with a startup from Silicon Valley called Shopkick in order to devise a way to make cell phone coupons work.


    Starting from August, around 25 malls in the cities of Loa Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and New York will have devises installed that will help Shopkick in its effort to make its cell phone coupons work. The malls owned by Simon Property Group, have on an average, 140-150 stores and the shops that will be participating in this scheme will have to have speakers installed near its entrance, which will emit a high frequency sound that is beyond the audibility limit of humans, but the frequency will match that of the microphones in mobile phones. When a customer walks by the store, they can activate the application, which is by the way, only available on unlocked iPhone4 and Android powered devices, and will start to receive points, discount offers, news and updates about what the shop has to offer and so much more that the shop could use to get you inside and cajole you to part with your money.


    Four other big guns in the retail business are also using the latest application from Shopkick, the most recognizable being Macy’s Big Buy, although the other three wished to remain anonymous. Macy’s will have the technology up and running in almost 25% of its store in one week in the test phase and if the experiment goes well, they will expand it to the other stores as well. Sources reveal the Macy’s stores in San Francisco might be the first ones to have this technology.


    However, the skepticism about it is still there and experts believe that it will drive young people to shop online even more.

  • BlackBerry releases the Torch
    Posted on August 22, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    It’s official! Finally BlackBerry has answered all the prayers from its ‘worshippers’ and released the new Unlocked Torch 9800, the vertical slider and it will be going live on AT&T. it packs quite a punch, it must be said, for RIM and also the new BlackBerry 6 operating system. The Torch, however, has been hailed as one of the best offerings from RIM in quite some time and the news time that it is getting is nothing short of what it deserves.



    The new device is very impressive, to put in short. The full QWERTY keypad was a cause for concern for many users, but after prolonged sessions of testing it, it has been found to work just fine. The slider display also does not cause any sort of hindrances to the QWERTY keypad in no way, and once you open the keyboard to use it, you will find that the device balances nicely in your hand as well. The BlackBerry 6 also fares quite well and although it is not much different from earlier renditions of the Operating System, the users of BlackBerry unlocked cell phone will more or less be satisfied with the total package that the company is offering them.


    Perhaps the most impressive thing about the Touch is the Touch screen display. RIM’s previous touch screens do not have a very good reputation, but the Torch does it no harm and rather enhances it very much and puts it on the same category as the iPhone or such devices. The response of the display is very prompt and the latest pinch-to-zoom feature is very much a delight to use and is very much like those on the iPhone4 unlocked handset.


    AT&T is offering the BlackBerry for $199 and here is the real test for the phone and everyone is eager to see how it actually fares in the market.

  • Valentine’s Day may be long gone, but the spirit of love seems to still be there with Sprint, who are giving their Premier Customers the opportunity to reserve their own Unlocked Samsung ( Epic 4G). While others will have to wait for some time to get a chance to be able to reserve the Epic 4G for themselves, this is one opportunity that the Premier Customers of Sprint would just hate to pass on. If you are one of those few, lucky enough to be Premier Customers of Sprint check the inboxes of your e-mail accounts as soon as you can, so that you don’t miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity.


    Now, we do know that many of you technology freaks out there have been eyeing the Epic 4G ever since the announcement of its launch. Sprint has put out a comparison just for those fans, which pits the Samsung Epic 4G and the HTC EVO 4G. Although Android is the common feature of both the devices, EVO trumps the Epic with the latest version of the Google platform on board, and is also WiMax enabled. The Epic has a QWERTY keypad that slides out where as the EVO’s keypad is on board the screen itself, that functions on touch. The EVO, however, will cost you around $199, which is not so bad for all the features that it offers. Again, the Epic 4G will push you back by $249, (the rates are after rebate) which raises a very basic question. Is it worth paying the additional $50 for a phone that just offers a few extra features and because it is a variant of the Samsung Unlocked Galaxy S? Critics say it would not be a bad investment either; however, a few more adjustments would have made it much more tempting.
